THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s message of hope, that offers forgiveness and reconciliation through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. It demonstrates the power of God and brings new life to each person who will receive Christ by faith (John 1:12). We are told not to add anything to its content or subtract anything from it (Galatians 1:6-8). Sometimes people will try and liken the Gospel message to a current slogan they heard in the world or a particular good deed someone demonstrated. However, the Gospel is not validated by any human wisdom or efforts, nor is it weakened when met by any human failures and sin.  It is the only message whereby a person can be made right with God’s forgiveness, and is given a new orientation in life.

Consider: “…He is the one who saved us and called us with a holy calling… not based on our works but on His own purpose and grace… now made visible through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus. He has broken the power of death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2 Timothy 1:9-10).
